Engineering Nonlinearity (ENL) Showcase Meeting

LVV Events

This event took place 5 years ago

The ENL project has kindly allowed the LVV to exhibit at this showcase event, we look forward to meeting you there. You are cordially invited to attend the Engineering Nonlinearity Final Showcase event, to be held on the 3rd and 4th July at the University of Sheffield. It will be the chance for everyone involved in the ENL project, past and present to come together to discuss, debate and update the project’s progress and discuss its impact and legacy.

Attendance at the daytime sessions is free, including refreshments, but you must register to attend by sending an Email to this address – stating whether you will attend for either the 3rd or 4th of July, or for both days.  

The event will take place in The Diamond, the University of Sheffield’s new £81 million award-winning building.

Please visit the Engineering Nonlinearity website for any news and updates regarding the showcase and other ENL activity:

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Suzanne Lightfoot at
